Marvel Universe Miniatures Game - Gambit

Knight Models are continuing to expand the range of miniatures for both their Batman Miniatures Game and their Marvel Universe Miniatures Game and after my recent acquisition of their X-Men Starter Set I decided to expand my options with a few more members of the X-Men/Mutants faction...

Gambit - Blister and Insert
The individual models come in blister packs which also contain the models stat card.

Gambit - Stat Card
I've taken a picture of the stat card so you can see the quality and overall look as well as including a picture of the official version downloaded from the Knight Models website in case any of the info is obscured on the card version.

Gambit is affiliated with the 'X-Men/Mutant' faction and is 'Neutral' so can work with 'Heroes' or 'Villains'.
All of the current Knight Models 30mm based range come with a textured base. These bases are all identical so if you're looking for some variety then you may want to remove the tab from the models base and attach it to something else.

Gambit - Unassembled
Here's pictures of both sides of the unassembled model.

Gambit - Assembled
The model consists of only two parts so all you need to attach is the arm and staff to the main body though I had a bit of trouble aligning the arm with the body without the staff being obstructed by the cloak, a tiny bit of bending back into place sorted that out though. The model will also need some mould lines removing and this can be simply done with either a sharp blade or a decent file though be careful not to remove any detail while doing so. The staff had quite a large lump of flash on it that required filing down though your own model may not as another person I spoke to didn't have that issue.

Gambit - Other Views
Here's an alternate view of the model including a multiple angle view.

Gambit - Comic Outfits
If you happen to be looking for colour scheme inspiration then Mr Lebeau has had a few different outfit changes though the approximate format is always fairly similar...

Should you be interested in this set or any other models from the Marvel Universe Miniatures Game factions then this page here will let you know what models are available for each faction.

Thoughts and comments are (as usual) most welcome.
